Mailinator:Spam Map

September 20th, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

Ever wondered where all that spam is coming from? Take a look at Mailinator’s Spam Map.

They have mapped the geo-lookup of the IP addresses in their received spam against google‘s maps.

Doesn’t seem to be much there at the moment, and I suppose that distributed bot nets won’t show up because they wouldn’t make it into the top list.

I was surprised to see the one in London was one of uk2.net‘s mail servers.

Postscript: Brian Pipa who wrote the code for the Spam Map contacted me about the above image, asking which browser/OS was used (Mac OS X/Safari), as the formatting was not as it should look.
